The Scoop:He has an excellent chance to produce solid stats against a weak 76ers team. However, Scola is only an option in daily leagues, or just as a waiver pickup until West returns. Scola will be joined in the starting lineup with Donald Sloan, C.J. Miles, Chris Copeland, and Roy Hibbert.
C.J. Miles wasn't too happy with his play this preseason and was eager to gain some positive momentum heading into the regular season. Miles came out shooting Thursday night and scored 23 points to help the Indiana Pacers beat the Charlotte Hornets 88-79 in the preseason finale for both teams. Miles made six of his first seven shots and from the field, and Luis Scola had 15 points and 12 rebounds. David Sloan added 11 points and eight assists.
Luis Scola scored 15 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers against the Hornets on Thursday.
The Scoop:David West (ankle) is very questionable to start the year, so we should see a lot of Scola to start the season. He's never really been a consistent fantasy asset because he rarely contributes in other categories besides points and boards. Scola is more of a short-term add and we like Chris Copeland more as a late-round pick for his upside.
